It was back in April of 2013 when I spotted the name "Lavelle R. Bible" on the jail roster. He was charged with failing to register as a predatory offender and thanks to Bible's distinctive name I remembered, hey, that's one of the Level Three Sex Offenders who lives in North Minneapolis.
Funny how "Lavelle" is his name and "Level Three" is his title. Maybe he should change his middle name to "Three" instead of "Rossell?"
Anyway, spring is in the air, the time when Level Three Sex offenders want to frolic and be free (allegedly) of a properly registered address. So once again Lavelle is...
...sitting in jail for failing to register his address. What's really weird is it's the same address he neglected to register (allegedly) LAST TIME: 922 Vincent Ave. N., which appears under the "master address" of 920 Vincent Ave. N.
Thinking there might be some simple explanation for this odd duplication of charges, I checked to see if maybe Lavelle has been sitting in jail all this time charged with the same thing. Nope, turns out he was picked up March 14. It's always possible, however, this is the same old charge which has reared its head in a new form.
Geez, Lavelle, we all know where you live and nobody is bothering you, even though you're part of an undesirable concentration of Level Three sex offenders who have been dumped on North Minneapolis with the acquiescence of various public officials.
So what's the big deal about keeping your paperwork properly filled out? Stay off the jail roster and most likely you'll stay off my blog!
